Freezing beans

I'm going to freeze some young green & butter beans (using the food sealer method which sucks the air out & seals the bags). I was going to leave them whole - it is best to top/tail, and do you have to blanch first? Thanks, C

I cut mine up as I would use them then I can put them in the pot frozen just easier no difference either way I would have thought.
